AceShowbiz - Things got a little bit steamy when Patrick Dempsey visited an Australian TV show over the weekend. Appearing on the country's "Today" show on Sunday, August 21 alongside Renee Zellweger, the actor accidentally discussed erections while promoting their upcoming film "Bridget Jones's Baby".
As seen in a video below, the former "Grey's Anatomy" star tried to show off his knowledge of slang terms from Down Under and stunned the hosts when he said, "Traveller." "Traveller's a beer you travel with, right?" he asked while everyone else burst into laughter.
"You're not supposed to say that," co-host Richard Wilkins told Dempsey, who looked confused as he asked again, "What's a traveller? Have I alienated everyone in the country?"
To those who don't know, "traveller" in Aussie means an erection a male develops while riding public transportation. Dempsey found out about this towards the end of the interview when he mumbled, "What the heck is traveller?" in front of Wilkins, who then whispered what it meant in his ear. "Oh, excuse me," the actor replied.
Zellweger will reprise her role as the title character in "Bridget Jones's Baby" while Dempsey will play her new love interest. Also starring Colin Firth as Bridget's ex Mark Darcy, the film is hitting U.S. theaters on 16 September.
